RALEIGH, N.C. -- December 3, 2013

Red Hat, Inc. (NYSE: RHT), the world’s leading provider of open source
solutions, today announced the general availability of OpenShift Enterprise 2,
the latest version of its award-winning, on-premise private
Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) offering. With OpenShift Enterprise 2, customers
can increase the velocity, efficiency and scalability of their IT service
delivery, drive faster development of new applications and business services
and reduce time-to-market. With powerful new features – including datacenter
infrastructure integration, an advanced administration console, support for
even more programming languages, and new collaboration capabilities – and
expanded global availability, a wider range of developers can achieve the
benefits of private PaaS technology for their cloud deployments.

OpenShift Enterprise, introduced in November 2012, is a critical component of
Red Hat’s vision for the open hybrid cloud, providing an on-demand, elastic,
scalable and fully configured application development, testing and hosting
environment for application developers so they can focus on coding new
application services with reduced operational burdens. It automates much of
the provisioning and systems management of the application platform stack in a
way that enables the IT operations team to more easily meet growing business
demands for new application services. OpenShift Enterprise is built on a
trusted stack of open source-based Red Hat technologies, including Red Hat
Enterprise Linux, Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform and OpenShift
Origin, the open source PaaS project that forms the foundation for all of Red
Hat’s suite of OpenShift PaaS platforms.

Since its launch in November 2012, Red Hat has added more than 45 features to
OpenShift Enterprise via four product releases, incorporating many features
first introduced in OpenShift Online, the company’s fully-supported public
PaaS offering. OpenShift Enterprise 2 continues Red Hat’s leadership in open
hybrid cloud and PaaS, introducing several new features that make private PaaS
easier to consume and implement, including:

  *Powerful datacenter infrastructure integration, simplifying the deployment
    of OpenShift on OpenStack via OpenStack Orchestration (Heat) templates,
    enabling OpenShift’s plugin-based integration with external router and
    load balancer infrastructure, and providing a streamlined OpenShift
    Enterprise installer, enabling IT to more quickly realize the benefits of
    cloud computing.
  *Advanced administration console, offering IT operations a more streamlined
    PaaS experience and giving them visibility into the applications, users
    and overall capacity of their PaaS platform.
  *Support for the latest programming languages, giving developers access to
    a wide variety of popular programming languages, enabling them to push the
    limits of application creativity and innovation while meeting enterprise
    business requirements. As a polyglot, or multi-language, PaaS, in addition
    to Java, Ruby, Python, PHP and Perl, OpenShift Enterprise now offers
    Node.js for server-side JavaScript.
  *New collaboration capabilities, enabling developers to more easily share
    access to their applications for team-based development, bringing the
    benefits of community-powered innovation to the enterprise.


OpenShift Enterprise 2 will be available on Dec. 11, 2013 to customers in
North America, the United Kingdom, Continental Europe, and select Asia and
Latin America regions, including Australia, ASEAN, Argentina and Brazil,


Red Hat’s general manager of Cloud and OpenShift, Ashesh Badani, will host a
live webcast, including special guests, to discuss the OpenShift Enterprise 2
launch at 12:00 p.m. ET on Dec. 3, 2013. Following remarks, press and analysts
are invited to participate in a question and answer session.

“PaaS represents the fastest growing segment of cloud computing^1, and Red Hat
offers the industry’s only full suite of open source PaaS solutions for both
public and private PaaS. OpenShift Enterprise 2 extends this leadership and
delivers what users want – an application-driven enterprise – by making PaaS
even easier to consume.”

David S. Linthicum, SVP Cloud Technology Partners and recently named as a
“Cloud Computing Pioneer” by Information Week.

“The relative growth of PaaS in the enterprise market is outpacing both IaaS
and SaaS. The time-to-market, business agility, and cost efficiency benefits
are now proven. Indeed, I’m seeing a mass migration from traditional platforms
to private and public PaaS. Moreover, the businesses are seeing a quick return
on investment, as well as the ability to put the application services in place
as quickly as the business requires them. This is clearly strategic
technology, and I'm impressed with the traction and direction that Red Hat has
demonstrated with OpenShift."
